BLACKOUT

Author(s): 
Margo Scott is terrified that she's losing her mind. Not only does she suffer from memory gaps and strange compulsions, but she's implicated in the murder of Frank Temple, the deputy director of Terrorism Control Force. Margo swears she didn't know the man, but a picture of the two of them says differently.

Agent Jake Wise considered Frank a mentor and, ironically, Frank had requested that Jake monitor Margo just before he was killed. Neither Margo nor Jake is completely sure she didn't kill Frank, and a well-orchestrated trap seems to be closing in around Margo. With her inability to remember exactly who or what she is, the odds are not in her favor. Jake, however, is determined to get to the truth, and he will take whatever steps he deems necessary.

This amnesia-with-a-twist story hooks you from the first page and never lets you go. Together, the reader and Margo discover tidbits about Margo's past that are both dangerous and riveting. Rising fast to the top of the romantic suspense genre, Solomon doesn't disappoint. (Apr., 384 pp., $6.50)
